I have read some things that lead me to believe that I can do this.

with hvm  vm's you can do this. lookup the docs about hvm
installations, you can use the iso, or point the config to the cdrom

For paravirtual installs you have to use the means of your
distribution of choice to be installed into a directory (which you put
into a lvm/partition/file-based block device and boot off it after
creating it - this is described in a lot of howto's.

Theoretically it woule be possible to install paravitrual systems from
a cd if the cd would contain a xen kernel to boot from, which in turn
must match your xen version. That is a bit hard, I think it's easiert
to buy a box that supports hvm :)
